Out To Sea

Category: Life As I Know It | Posted: Sat Oct 22, 2016 2:03 pm

Well, my friend is officially out to sea. I said goodbye as I watched his ashes mingle with the water. I'll admit, that day was emotional, but it has gotten a lot easier since then. It's been almost two months since he passed away unexpectedly and I have finally come to grips with it.

It has caused me to step back and begin preparing for worse things. He was a good friend and I fell apart. How would I react to losing someone really close? My dad is 80 and in bad health. My mom is 76 and also in bad health.

If anything good has come out of my friend's death it's that it has caused me to slow down a little and appreciate the people that I have around me right now. Life is fleeting and can come to an end suddenly. Appreciate who you have while you still have them with you.

That's very good advice EG. Unfortunately we rarely realise it until it's too late. I wonder why that is?

Because we're too busy to stop and think about it Frank. That is, until something like this happens.
